It is clear, visual, and I felt like I could feel what the characters were feeling.

But this is the second of his books that I've read that left me unsatisfied with the ending. As I read this novel I was never bored; and as I approached the end it became, for me, more and more of a nail-biting page-turner. So this is both a gripping medical thriller and a courtroom drama.

All I can add was that This book is told by the prespective of a 30 year old woman who is recalling her life and turmoil at age 14. I could not sympathize with Sybil the midwife or her husband.

Its updated guidance also confirms that home birth is as safe as birth in a midwife-led unit or a traditional labour ward for the babies of low-risk pregnant women who have already had at least one child previously. This book started out extremely strong for me. Every year, hundreds of thousands of women die in pregnancy and during labor. She performs a caesarian section, and saves the baby, but did she kill Charlotte in the process? However, her inexperienced assistant and the father of the baby both have their doubts about whether or not the mother was actually dead at the time of the incision, and the midwife goes to trial for manslaughter. Maybe Sybil is this midwife that doesn't think things over. The narrator does and doesn't have the full picture somehow, and I'm confused as to how a first-person omniscient narration style even works.
